This paper encapsulates generalized considerations of power turbine matching with aeroderivative gas generator at high power settings. A computation route is set up to estimate the magnitude of the desired parameters from design point knowledge of a gas generator. Then, a method is delineated to verify matching of power turbine inlet nozzle area with exhaust of gas generator by measuring tangible tested parameters. Data manipulation revealed that there exists a favorable correlation between pressure ratio of high pressure turbine and gas generator speed that may directly reflect the influence of physical area change of power turbine inlet nozzle area. A practical example is presented to demonstrate the procedure. From engine design to retirement, the generalized considerations may be applied on several occasions where question of matching may become important and require explanation for performance and financial justifications. Some generalized rules of matching are condensed and their applications are suggested.
